    I’ll mask off and paint the supercharger back to aluminum and spray the dampener and bearing cover with some high heat clear. By the way, it seems that the Kawi performance bolts are all 304 stainless not 316 so they are not very corossion resistant to salt water. Here are the bolts I ordered from bolt depot. They are all 316 stainless and we’re very neatly packaged and marked for easy ID

    Well I was able to start it up for just a second the other day. I didn’t let it run since it has no exhaust or sc on it right now. Looking good so far! What is everyone’s opinion on the riva air intake and exhaust with waterbox. Are their any noticeable gains to be had?

    Here’s my latest update: replaced the reverse cable and through hull seal the other day and it’s working great now. Removed the pump, plate and intake grate. The pump had a little bit of water in the cone so I’ll be tearing it apart for a rebuild with the 2011 spec shaft and bearings. The stainless ring has a small high spot that makes the impeller catch as it’s spinning. It’s very minimal so I’m going to take it to the machine shop on island and have it ever so slightly align honed back to spec. Found the old fpo key while vacuuming out the bulge! It was stuck near the driveshaft. Also replaced the supercharger belt.

    Got everything in the engine bay completed and bolted together. started it up and it runs great! I keep reading thrust bearing failures on the forum and have been hoping all is well but the engine runs great and doesn't have any strange noises. I ordered a whole new performance pump assembly from Kawi performance along with a BOV block off. Still have to work on steering plate and also readjust my engine/driveshaft alignment. If the thrust bearing was bad I assume it would knock, seize or make some other sort or terrible noise???

    !!! Engine purrs like a kitten and there is ZERO crankshaft play!!! On another note, my upper steering plate is seized completely with salt. It cannot be fixed and will need to be replaced. Fortunately the riva plate is on sale ��

    That pump will need to be replaced, the high spot will get worse with time and eat your prop.
